Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
DBT is an approach to psychotherapy that supports clients who struggle with self harm, suicidal ideation or who have a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (as well as general mental health concerns). When working with a DBT therapist, clients will learn emotional regulation skills, mindfulness skills, distress tolerance skills, and interpersonal skills.
Supervision is an essential part of a clinician's growth and when done in a collaborative, supportive and consistent way, will lead training therapists to a deeper understanding of their role in the therapeutic relationship, a more skillful implementation of their approach of choice, and a stronger ability to assess the client's concerns and diagnose accurately.
